Be inventive. When details are unusual, even subtly unusual, that’s exciting. “The kitchen is part of the décor of the overall home now. The details, the choices you make for it tell the story of what you love. Get excited about materials, and blend them in interesting ways. Consider open shelving, not just for pots and plates but for pottery and other statement pieces. Bring in artwork. Embrace clean lines, but make it dramatic. Details can be simple but sophisticated and surprising, too.”

Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth Winner of the 2011 Stars of Design Award for Interior Design

EQUESTRIAN DREAMS

BIG PICTURE

CLASSIC TOUCH

FRENCH LESSON

With a strong connection to the outdoors, a house and horse farm on Chesapeake Bay offers its inhabitants a comfortable, laid-back environment.

Creating impact with its open floor plan and cozy interiors, a Maryland abode is infused with a relaxed atmosphere and a well-thought-out design.

A designer and client team up again to imbue a second dwelling in Washington, D.C., with a neutral palette and neoclassical furnishings.

Built from the ground up, a McLean residence uses traditional elements inspired by the châteaus of France’s Dordogne River Valley region.

EDITOR’S LETTER

ARTS & DECORATION

W

hile recently browsing an antique shop in Flat Rock, North Carolina, I picked up an issue of Arts & Decoration magazine, circa March 1927. Charmed by its vintage photographs and retro appeal, I took it home to study its content. What insightful words of design wisdom I discovered in its pages. A few to take note of, and for us design devotees to keep in mind...

On Gardens: “Gardens, like everything else in the world, should be made with imagination as well as knowledge. There must seem leisure in the loveliness—and permanency. In short, beauty of a garden lies in looking lived in, by dreams at least.” On Room Composition: “It is one thing to be able to make up a pretty color scheme and quite a different matter to bring all the diverse elements of a room together in such fashion as to make a beautiful composition. People live in these compositions; move about in them. Therefore, they must of necessity be as sound in their structural composition as a group of sculpture and as lovely in their color choice and arrangement as is the work of the painter upon canvas.” On Architecture: “As American dwellings are built better, more permanently and more beautifully, they will be regarded less as real estate and more as homes, and with that change in attitude, the status of the home as the nucleus of society will approach more closely the older American tradition.”

Created from a series of interconnected geometric shapes with metallic-finished cores, Gabriel Kakon and Scott Richler’s Welles light fixture is a welcome addition to the brothers’ exclusive line of furnishings. Since launching their namesake collection, Gabriel Scott, last year, the architects-turned-designers’ chic set has rapidly expanded—with plans to introduce a similar piece in the form of a sconce—and there are no signs of slowing down. “Our intention was to offer a flexible lighting system that gives decorators a maximum amount of possibilities,” notes Richler. gabriel-scott.com

HIGH PROFILE This season, Alexandria’s Lee Design & Interiors expands its inventory of luxury architectural fittings and unique treasures with the introduction of Waterworks’ celebrated selection of kitchen and bath hardware and Christopher Guy’s iconic furnishings. “While completely different in scope, both companies are design powerhouses,” says Vice President Joshua Lee, “and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring them into the showroom.” Shown here, the Obsidian chandelier from Viz Glass is just a glimpse of the tony offerings that are currently available. leedesignandinteriors.com

true story

COMING HOME

Pompanoosuc Mills’ Alexandria outpost provides enduring inspiration to the Washington, D.C., design realm. The family-run company—which has been creating solid hardwood and upholstered furniture in its Vermont workshop for over 40 years—recently released a brilliant assemblage of interior elements that reflect its storied heritage. “Over the years we’ve cultivated an incredible set of timeless designs,” notes showroom manager Robert Wilhite. “We’ve also developed an unparalleled experience creating items that solve a myriad of spatial challenges in the home and office.” Offering fully customizable options in materials like reclaimed redwood, bird’seye maple and quilted walnut, “each piece is truly one-of-a-kind.” pompy.com

According to Alexandria-based interior designer Stuart Nordin, opening her eponymous boutique was a lifelong dream. Since stumbling upon the space—which happened to be down the street from the house she grew up in—just one year ago, she has cultivated a charming collection of distinct curiosities, local art and accents from a wide range of exclusive brands. This fall, Nordin says she is looking forward to introducing Sferra Linens to her stylish repertoire as well as the latest décor from Bunny Williams’ BeeLine Home collection. stuartnordin.com

Q+A

Luxe sits down down with interior designer Stuart Nordin, owner of Alexandria’s Stuart Nordin Home & Design, to discuss life’s influences.

What inspired you to begin a career in design? I have always been captivated by architecture, art and design; there was nothing else I could have done professionally that would have fulfilled me the way working as an interior designer does. How has traveling helped shape your design aesthetic? I have always loved antiquing and buying unique pieces on trips abroad. From Brazil to Maine, my travels are a major source of inspiration. Who are some of your personal design icons? Frances Elkins for her exquisite taste for classic, timeless and livable beauty, and Bunny Williams for the artfully curated yet balanced spaces she creates. What influences you on a daily basis? The collaborative fashion in which I work has created friendships between many of my clients and myself; these unexpected relationships inspire me each day.

GREAT HEIGHTS

The raw quality and natural allure of Machu Picchu inspired designer Jiun Ho to create his latest furniture collection entitled Jiun Ho IV, a collaborative effort with Peruvian-born textile designer Sandra Jordan. Part of the new line is the Chinchero bench, shown, enveloped in Jordan’s olive-hued Prima Alpaca fabric—a luxurious fiber that was historically implemented by Incan royalty and evokes the ancient heritage of the Andean culture. According to Ho, the bench, which is bestowed with a framework of robust steel, “reflects the magical essence of the royal estate built with eternity in mind.” jiunhodejia.com 076 L U X E I N T E R I O R S

For Falls Church native Kelly Thompson, the design maven behind Pearson Square’s Stylish Patina, the skill of successfully blending vintage and modern furnishings comes second nature yet her concept for the shop was four years in the making. “When working with the old and new, it’s about striking that perfect balance,” says Thompson, who also offers interior design and event styling services. With a focus on “clean lines and thoughtfully edited vignettes,” Thompson’s ideal setting is “refined, beautiful and bestowed with meaning.” stylishpatina.com

COLOR CORRECTED Italian design house Poltrona Frau recently unveiled 11 new sumptuously appointed furniture lines, all of which were inspired by the rich history of luxury automobile and aviation models. Roberto Lazzeroni’s Montera chair is a two-tone design—shown here in camel and turquoise leathers—set atop a rich wengestained ash wood base. Available in a vibrant amalgam of colorways, Montera embodies a sophisticated silhouette, which Lazzeroni achieved via an ardent focus on lightness of form. poltronafrau.com

ENTERTAINING

“I find that many of my clients are attracted to the idea of using color but are fearful in applying it,” Boyd says. “Tabletop is a great way to have fun and experiment with interesting combinations.” The designer chose Anna Weatherley’s goldrimmed charger for its amethyst color and her scalloped white dinner plate for its bright note; the hand-painted Jaune de Chrome dessert dish serves as a complement to both, and the leopard-print Norbar fabric neutralizes the color scheme. Boyd layered Rogaska crystal throughout the smoky purple dining room and added delicate Hermès flatware as jewelry for the table—a play on the literal reference she made with an agate bracelet as a napkin ring. Alongside the fireplace, they make an inviting space even cozier in time for a fabulous fall get together. Placemats, Bagatelle in Violine; manuelcanovas.com.

CITY PLANNING

FERNAND LÉGER’S ENDURING ART PIECE DEPICTING ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN LIFE INSPIRES AN EXHIBITION ON THE MODERN METROPOLIS.

S

o many modern artists expressed their world through their experience of the street and the changes they were observing in the urban fabric. The modern metropolis was the central symbolic site of modernity. Léger: Modern Art and The Metropolis—the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s exhibition on the metropolis and the exchanges of influence between Fernand Léger and the artists, architects, filmmakers and poets

of the 1920s international avant-garde in Paris—makes its debut this fall. Running from October through January, the exhibition was inspired by The City (shown here), a formative work in 20th-century art, and one of the core masterpieces in the museum’s collection. “We wanted to focus on the metropolis to show how current modern art’s engagement with the world can be for today’s city dwellers,” notes exhibit curator Anna Vallye. “What’s so remarkable is that the city Léger painted almost 100 years ago is still completely familiar to us today. Of course, cities have changed since then, but there is also something profoundly enduring about Léger’s vision.” philamuseum.org

FIVE MINUTES WITH...

BON VIVANT

WITH A NEW BOOK CHRONICLING THE RESTORATION OF HIS FRENCH CHÂTEAU AND AN UPCOMING TABLEWARE LINE FOR ROYAL LIMOGES, L.A. DESIGNER TIM CORRIGAN STILL FINDS TIME FOR A LITTLE JOIE DE VIVRE.

IN YOUR NEW BOOK, AN INVITATION TO CHÂTEAU DU GRAND-LUCÉ... Many people think

that classic design is outdated and uncomfortable and I wanted to show that nothing could be further from the truth. Design is a pendulum and while it swings from trend to trend, it always returns to the classical because there is an innate sense of security in it. It is more forgiving, as it accepts that daily accoutrements are a part of our living spaces.

YOUR APPROACH TO DESIGN:

WHEN ENTERTAINING GUESTS…

None of what I do is too studied. I think a flea market treasure can be mixed in with an 18th-century console and you get to appreciate each of them more because of their relationship to one another. Who wants to live in a room that whispers, “Look, but don’t touch?”

It is important to make them feel as if they are in their own home. I always leave flowers, freshly baked goodies, magazines or books I think they will enjoy and a scented candle in their room to welcome them.

ARCHITECTURAL WHY UNDERTAKE SUCH A PAINSTAKING RESTORATION?

I love the secrets that you find in the stones of old buildings and the challenge of taking something that was designed for a different way of life and subtly transforming it for the way we live today. FURNISHING THE CHATEAU…

Was a real labor of love and I used an approach that I would advise anyone to: Buy what you love and it will somehow find its proper place. Clockwise from top: Corrigan’s French estate; Macassar Ebony & Ostrich Egg lamp by TC Home; a seating area of the master bedroom featured in An Invitation to Château du Grand-Lucé; an antique brass fire screen; the designer in his Loire Valley home.

MOST FAVORED

CALIFORNIA VS. FRANCE: For

me, Southern California is all about comfort, casual living and self- expression, but there is just something about the French respect for culture, history and tradition that really resonates with me.

PERIOD: Mid-tolate 18th-century France was such a remarkable time for architecture, because it held the highest level of refinement of the French aesthetic, but it was tempered by the age of enlightenment. PAINT A PICTURE CTURE OF TIME SPENT AT YOUR PICTURESQUE CTURESQUE CHÂTEAU: It’s like going back

in time to when life was all much slower and people really had the time to be with each other. I can think of no other place in the world I would rather be when I am afforded the luxury of time.

When designer Cédric Ragot conceives an interior accent, such as this ombré rug he created for French atelier Roche Bobois, he perpetually aims to conjure a link between the functional and the conceptual. “Ponyo was actually one of my first forays into the art of rug design,” says Ragot, adding that he “endeavored to invite a harmonious blend of tones, which in turn, serve to warm up a room.” Featured here in a raspberry-centric scheme, the artfully devised floorcovering is handwoven from sumptuous New Zealand wool.

This season, Kyle Bunting’s effervescent hide-on-hair pattern work collides with South Florida design studio Britto Charette’s penchant for Art Deco architecture. The result is this hourglass stool, which marks the duo’s first venture into the home accessories arena. “I like this piece as a single side table, but it works best when used in multiples,” says Bunting. “The juxtaposition of the warm and tactile hide against the opaque base’s smooth silhouette is nearly the perfect combination of materials and surfaces.”

“This stool’s concentric circles remind us of an age-old tree trunk. Overall, we adore the clean look, especially after a recent trip to Japan where home décor is pared down and streamlined.”

In the early 1950s, celebrated Italian architect and furniture visionary Gio Ponti experimented with several models of this exquisite case good. Designated with the simple moniker Chest of Drawers, the time-honored design far exceeds its humble name. Bestowed with a robust elmwood body and an ivory-finished front, the midcenturystyle piece is accented with handles in elm, Italian walnut, mahogany and rosewood, all resting on lustrous brass feet.


What may appear to be a straightforward yet luxuriously appointed chair swathed in a graphite-hued velvet is anything but basic. This plush beauty, a piece from the newly launched Luxury in Motion collection by Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman, is also a fully functioning recliner, silently extending at the push of a concealed upholstered button. “The graceful contours of this chair’s frame lend a sartorial element,” says creative director Phillip Jeffries. The jewelry-like Greek key motif at its base is the finishing touch to this well-tailored piece.

“While linear in form, this chair sits in motion. Timeless yet bold, I definitely can envision it in the bedroom of my Milan apartment. The Greek key detailing is an added bonus.”

As a creative, I’m inspired by so many artistic mediums—from painting, drawing and sculpture to textiles and even an affinity for vintage jewels. I strive to be adventurous in my work and my approach to convey it, never identifying with any singular style or technique. All of my work is composed in my Capitol Hill studio, and I’m excited to announce that my jewelry can now be found at Barneys New York. juliewolfedesign.com 2

MODERN APPROACH

Nothing beats a good night of gallery hopping out on the town. My usual suspects are Hemphill Fine Arts, G Fine Art, Connersmith and Heiner Contemporary. Though they are all inspiring, I’m always drawn to the contemporary works found at Heiner. The chic black exterior flecked with an entrancing hot pink door beckons from the street. Once inside, the stark white walls are filled with colorful masterpieces. It’s a perfect place to gain mounds of inspiration! heinercontemporary.com

“I’m a bit of a rebel and rather prone to taking on overwhelming challenges,” designer and Washington, D.C., native Darryl Carter playfully confides. No doubt this joie de vivre is the impetus behind Carter’s eponymous home décor boutique and design studio, which he recently opened in a historic building and

The shop, with its exposed pre-Civil War bricks and timber beams, meanders like a house museum. “It’s thick with the history of the city,” says Carter, who raided his own warehouses of architectural salvage to renovate the structure. “I used what took me years to accumulate. The showroom truly expresses my design DNA.” Indeed, the carefully curated merchandise reflects Carter’s signature style: spare, sophisticated and soulful. In addition to his proprietary furnishing lines, the Darryl Carter showroom carries an eclectic collection of global antiques and handcrafted items, the latter by local artisans. “I’ve always had the heart of an artist,” says Carter. “From historically driven projects to reinventing found furniture pieces, I always try to bridge the modern with the antique.” darrylcarter.com; 202.234.5926

Right now, I’m working on a PBS series, and am in the midst of developing a number of home product lines. DESIGN ICONS:

A few examples of what I think were so inspired for their moment in time are the Connecticut residence of fashion designer Bill Blass, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and the staircase at the Nathaniel Russell House Museum in Charleston, South Carolina. A WELL-DESIGNED HOME IS…

a napkin that has left a perfect ring; that’s beautiful to me,” says Asante, who uses high-quality tissue paper—the everyday variety doesn’t bleed—to create quilt-like works such as the three-story installation that hangs in the United States Embassy in Madagascar. With Asante’s enviable gene pool, including Grammy-nominated jazz great Nnenna Freelon and award-winning architect Philip Freelon, it is no wonder that creativity runs through her veins. “I grew up enveloped by the arts and discovered both my heritage and my passion at the same time,” she says. Asante, whose work can be seen at Morton Fine Art and who counts story quilt painter Faith Ringgold as a mentor, loves pushing the boundaries of materials and using them in new ways. “I often find myself improvising with color, light and shape,” she says, “kind of like the way a jazz musician scats on a solo.” mayafreelon.com

With clients ranging from Oprah Winfrey to the Saudi royal family and commissions from the Four Seasons to the Fred W. Smith National Library, designer David Iatesta bridges the gap between styles. When it comes to furnishings, he also toes the line between traditional and modern. “I combine elements from both traditional and contemporary pieces to create a timeless

product line,” he says. Drawing from his background in antique restoration, Iatesta creates heirloom-quality furniture, accessories and lighting with the approach of an old-world craftsman and the eye of a modern master. With a 15-year business and 40 artisans operating out of his Stevensville studio, Iatesta’s design empire encompasses a 350-piece-and-growing collection sold to the trade in showrooms throughout the country. Using nature as his go-to inspiration, Iatesta says his strength lies in visualizing something that doesn’t exist. Case in point: the Fiore chandelier. “I was walking in the woods, saw this beautiful branch and visualized it as a chandelier,” he says, bridging yet another gap between what is and what can be. davidiatesta.com; 410.604.0360

etting out to renovate the kitchen of their cottage-style home in New Canaan, Connecticut, a couple didn’t have to search too far for their muse. With Dutch and Belgian heritages, respectively, the husband and wife instinctively harked back to the enchanting

aesthetics for which their native lands are revered. “We wanted to make sure that we retained a very cozy, vintage European vibe, like that of an old bakery, for instance,” homeowner and designer Tessa Neleman-Pimontel explains. Another check off their wish list was to keep the space open (notice the pared down cabinetry; the simple ceramic subway tiling by the Bertazonni hood and stove; uninterrupted counter space), organized and flooded with light while retaining a sense of genuineness. “This kitchen adds an instant feeling of authenticity to our home,” she says. “It works out well as an open space time together. Every afternoon, the low-setting sun pours in, which adds to the whole mood we were aiming to capture.”

We were lucky to find the elements needed to achieve the style we had in mind all along of European elegance with an artistic bohemian flair. TESSA NELEMAN-PIMONTEL, ECHO AND MERCER

DISPLAY TYPE Opting for limited upper cabinetry, the Nelemans had to search for alternative answers to de rigueur storage questions. “The idea of the hutch was always in our minds, but it only came to fruition after we found the right pieces,” Tessa notes. “Nearing the final stages of the renovation, we took a trip to Mexico. We knew what we were looking for, but were very surprised when we found it in an old hardware store. We fell in love with the huge hutch and bought it right there and then.” To balance the rustic nature of the towering case, the homeowners kept it simple. “We like white as a base, but there are many touches of Delft and even Guatemalan earthenware in the mix. The key is to make sure that whatever is visible is positioned well (handles all turned the same direction, everything evenly spaced) and to edit, edit, edit. Keep only what you really need and use often.” For additional visual variety, they encircled the antique Swedish farm table with steel bistro chairs from Vagabond Vintage in Atlanta.

sure that my client used every square inch of her home, and that each space met her needs and represented who she was,” Stanley says. The resulting bathroom is a study in simple elegance, and the impact of letting just a few statement pieces have their moment in the spotlight: a sinuous freestanding Waterworks tub entices a leisurely soak; dreamy draperies in a blush tone coyly flirt with a coquettish portrait of Marilyn Monroe; two-tone marble floors are striking yet feel as if they’ve always been there; and finally, the crown jewel of the room, a polyhedron chandelier Stanley sourced from JF Chen in Los Angeles that would get the most pragmatic person’s pulse racing.

A luxurious bathroom always needs enough room for two people and beautiful materials such as marble and stone. It should feel as if you’re in a grand hotel. ESTEE STANLEY, ESTEE STANLEY DESIGN


CLOTHES QUARTERS What’s a designer to do when a client’s existing closet space simply isn’t sufficient for their wardrobe? Well, you relocate the master bedroom and transform the remaining space into a dressing room fit for a Rodeo Drive boutique, of course. “I like to think of closets as a fun playroom for women, so I try to make them big enough where you can have friends come over, hang out and play dress up,” Stanley says. “This typically calls for a seating area.” The designer brought in a custom chaise that offers her client (and her client’s fortunate guests) a place to sit and ponder the day’s sartorial decisions, while an antique rug from Lawrence of La Brea complements sleek custom cabinetry. “This is one of my favorite designs I’ve done,” Stanley says. “It’s every woman’s dream.”

JOE LUCAS

ENTRÉZ-VOUS INTERIOR DESIGNER JOE LUCAS WORKED HIS DESIGN MAGIC, CREATING A GRAPHIC GALLERY WALL WITH PAPERS ENVISIONED AS WORKS OF ART.

Los Angeles designer and one half of Harbinger LA, Joe Lucas created an entryway to remember using the sleekest fall wallcoverings. A “sucker for a salon-style wall,” Lucas began his dynamic scene with artist Sharon Lee’s debut line as his anchor. “The chic gray-and-saffron combo of Lee’s Chrysanthemum design caught my eye instantly,” he says. Building from there, Lucas approached many of the papers as he would art. “Kelly Wearstler’s provocative new Crescent design is a recent obsession, so it needed to be framed. And the sculptural Weitzner paper lent itself to being floated in an acrylic box, earning the focal point position in the space.” From a Holland & Sherry-clad flowerpot and a Wearstler-wrapped lampshade to an Innovationsupholstered stool, Lucas reveals that wallpaper knows no boundaries.

Naturally lured by wallcoverings that possess an assured straight-lined disposition, interiors devotee Sara Ruffin Costello unexpectedly found herself swept away by the season’s more abstract offerings. “I was drawn to patterns that appear out of focus; especially those peachy, warm tones,” she explains. “They feel less expectant than chevron or stripes (which I love) that continue to pop up each year.” After reveling in a veritable trove of papers, Costello sought to create a sunburst, turning to London-based moldings manufacturer Solomon & Wu for a bit of architectural encouragement. “The plaster moldings were a structured counterbalance to the loose, dreamy quality of the papers, and the dynamic sunburst shape has an artistic character to it, like a patterned color wheel.”

PHILIP GORRIVAN

CASE STUDY GEOMETRICS AND BOLD PRINTS WERE THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THIS SOPHISTICATEDLY CLAD BOOKCASE ORNAMENTED BY INTERIOR DESIGNER PHILIP GORRIVAN.

“There is so much to be excited about when it comes to wallpaper,” exclaims New York-based interior designer Philip Gorrivan, who’s heralded his longstanding love affair with the material throughout his design career. His studious composition began with an unadorned bookcase that, according to the designer, left much to be desired. Presented with the latest lines, Gorrivan cloaked the back of the shelves with a subtle yet striking Farrow & Ball stripe and developed groupings of covered books in stylized vignettes, each layer telling its own story. “Dedar’s new boldly hued geometrics alongside Clarke & Clarke’s punchy floral patterns

“I tend to gravitate toward geometrics or patterns that aren’t so directional. I love products that are fearlessly gutsy. It’s fun to create a little tension in a space by introducing a wallpaper that appears to completely break all the rules.”

isitors to Crosiadore Farm, a working horse farm and residence on Maryland’s eastern shore, arrive via an allée of trees. The verdant 81-acre farm is teeming with wildlife: Seagulls glide over the water, and a

bald eagle might be spotted, as well as nesting ospreys, deer, and perhaps even the bright flash of a red fox on the move. “You eventually come around to the main house, which faces Chesapeake Bay,” says Sandra Nunnerley, the homeowners’ designer. The woman of the house is a renowned breeder of Oldenburg and Hanoverian horses for the discipline of dressage, and both she and her husband relish the outdoors. “Family and friends come down to ride and to just enjoy being in nature,” Nunnerley says. When the couple initially found the sprawling waterfront site, they wanted to build a home that was rooted in tradition, but fresh. So they hired architects Bernard Wharton and Don Aitken, who designed a traditional Shingle-style home as well as equestrian facilities. LUXE INTERIORS

Designer Sandra Nunnerley covered the living room’s custom sofas in fabric by Dessin Fournir, creating comfortable seating. A coffee table by Vaughan finishes this cozy fireside vignette. In the foreground, the Gramercy armchair from John Rosselli & Associates features a cushion clad in J. Robert Scott silk mohair.


In one corner of the living room hangs an 18th-century gouache-on-silk artwork from The Chinese Porcelain Company in New York. Draperies made using a Trend textile provide the perfect backdrop for the inherited piano illuminated by a Vaughan floor lamp. C O N T I N U E D F R O M P A G E 169

The house incorporates a rich variety of shapes and decorative elements—from elegant millwork, to dormers and elliptical windows, to a conical roof over the breakfast room with a copper finial—with every detail carefully considered. “We use a vocabulary of elements in our Shingle-style houses,” says Aitken, who worked on the project with home builder Bob Johnson and project manager Peggy Sharp. A center hall runs all the way through the home—from front to back. “When somebody arrives, it pulls them through the house,” Aitken says. Adds Nunnerley, “When you walk in the front door, you see straight through to the bay, and the room is infused with a crystalline light that is reflected off the water. That large center hall is crossed by another corridor that forms the central axis of the house.” The latter opens onto the main spaces: living, dining and breakfast rooms, which all look out to the water.

The couple enjoy maintaining the fine old traditions of horse breeding and sharing it with friends who visit to ride, fish, and reconnect to the countryside. So Nunnerley’s goal was to lend the look of a centuriesold home to a new estate. “It’s a very active house,” the designer says. “There are dogs; there are visitors; there’s family.

Exuding a modern country aesthetic, the kitchen features custom cabinetry designed by Shope Reno Wharton. The owners’ barstools pull up to a center island.

make the rooms functional so they could actually spend time in them, but it also needed to be comfortable for conversations after a long day of riding, and for entertaining.” To that end, Nunnerley mixed some of the homeowners’ existing furnishings—such as an inherited piano and an elegant long dining table—with new finds from shopping trips to New York and Europe. And she didn’t shy away from saturated color. “The dining room’s such a beautiful space, with French doors opening up onto Chesapeake Bay,” she says. “I wanted the area to be warm and comfortable, so I punctuated it with apricot walls.” LUXE INTERIORS

The wife’s study features an English chinoiserie nine-drawer desk from Gray Morell Designs in Los Angeles paired with a French wingback chair covered in rich fabric by Claremont. The late 19th-century oil-on-canvas paintings, On the Scent and On Point, are from Hyde Park Antiques. C O N T I N U E D F R O M P A G E 173

Of course, accommodations were also built for the horses, including an oak post-and-beam stable. “I have horses myself, so I love working on stables,” Aitken says. “In this case, the homeowners wanted a couple of birthing stalls, which are larger so the mares have more room. We also built an indoor riding arena.” Now that Crosiadore Farm is complete, both the horses and the humans are well accommodated. “Every space is usable,” Nunnerley says. “The living room is very comfortable, for just the couple or for a large group of people. They have a family room with a big roaring fire and television. You can take one of the boats off the dock and go out into the bay or go bird-watching. There are so many things to do.

tanding against a forested backdrop on a 50-acre estate, the serene Berlin, Maryland, retreat that designer Arlene Critzos was given the task of creating has all the exterior characteristics of a charming coastal New England

house: gray stone walls, dark cedar shingles, gabled detailing and a steeply pitched roof. But first impressions can be deceiving, as is

evident with a single step inside the door. “The owners wanted to walk in and say ‘wow,’ ” Critzos says of the warm, inviting interior with eye-catching details. “The entry, kitchen, living room and bar are all one large area with monumental ceiling heights and a strong architectural fireplace. The owners use this space to live and entertain, and its overall scale alone makes a statement.”

“It was very well-thought-out,” says Keith Iott, whose dual expertise as both architect and structural engineer shows in many of the home’s aspects—including the main level’s vast interior space. “Builder Robert Purcell and I worked together to establish the big picture of spatial relationships and take advantage of the views. There’s tons of structural steel in the house, but we were able to conceal the very large structural elements, and the open space is uninterrupted by columns.” Filling the space was inspired by another mandate from the owners: to design, not decorate. “The owners are well-traveled and worldly,” says Critzos. “They’d spent years gathering ideas from around the world. We shifted, sorted and edited to get a direction going.” Pulling from their surroundings, Critzos, along with Catherine Belkov, senior director of design, and Joyce Pearl, senior residential manager, established a neutral color palette of amber, taupe, gray

A man-made pond sets the stage for this home designed by architect Keith Iott, which includes a carriage house, left. Landscape architect Bryan LeCompte created a manicured lawn around a clamshell drive, with boxwood hedges, flowering liriope and hydrangea plantings in the center island.


The spacious kitchen includes custom cherrywood and bamboo-toned cabinetry from Wood-Mode topped with black lumiere granite counters from In Home Stone Marble & Granite. Volcanic limestone floors purchased at Davida’s Kitchen & Tiles create movement in the space.

and clay for finishes and flooring, such as the variegated limestone that flows throughout much of the house. Against that, each room was assigned what Critzos calls a statement concept.

For the dining room, designer Arlene Critzos selected comfortable Designmaster chairs swathed in Fabricut’s striped chenille. They pull up to a custom table with a base from Wells Industries and a turquoise glass top. A chandelier from Trend Lighting illuminates the scene and provides a sculptural accent.

In the two-story living room, for example, the statement piece is a dramatic stone wall that encompasses a sculptural steel, cherrywood and etched-bronze fireplace with an integrated stand-up bar. “The stone was a guiding light, because you can see it from every vantage point,” says Critzos. “We balanced the material with comfortable, contemporary seating in livable fabrics that are easy to care for.” Case in point: A pair of warm amber sofas by Henredon and an ebony-and-walnut console are welcoming yet durable pieces.

Apart from the living room, but in full view, is the kitchen, for which Critzos collaborated with kitchen designer Joni Zimmerman of Design Solutions. “The owners entertain a lot,” says Critzos. “We wanted it to be a social place where people could gather to cook and be together.” To that end, cherrywood and bamboo-toned cabinetry was designed to look like furniture, accentuated with glass tile backsplashes and black lumiere granite countertops. Set slightly apart, a dining room features a glass-topped table and unobstructed views to the outdoors. Other rooms in the home were designed with a bit more privacy in mind yet still possess their own statement-making qualities. The two-story library, for instance, features a custom cherrywood bookcase with ebonized panels and a rail system to allow access to upper-level shelves via a sliding ladder. A loft with glass rails

overlooks the space. In the master suite, a freestanding custom headboard wall was designed and built to add architectural impact and separate the sleeping space from a private sitting area. Each statement-making piece creates the perfect focal point for every room and truly reinforces the home’s overall pack-a-punch theme. “The height of the walls and ceilings, and details like a floating walnut staircase that runs from the basement to the second floor, were all major challenges, but generate dramatic impact,” says Purcell. And, as Critzos concludes, “The end result came together with no surprises and a happy client.” L LUXE INTERIORS

hen designer Frank Babb Randolph’s client—a friend of 15 years—sold the Victorian house in Georgetown he helped her renovate and furnish, she soon asked him, “Can we get together and

find another?” She was hopeful their collaboration could be resurrected around the antiques and neutral color palette that he had initially conjured for that home. As the president and CEO of an information services company, the owner desired an elegant space for entertaining. As a remarried mother of a now combined family of three boys and two dogs, she required practicality. She also wanted Randolph to weigh in on the houses she and her husband were vetting. “Frank and I see eye-to-eye,” she says. “We met in the mid-1990s at an antiques shop over an impromptu discussion about the patina on a mirror we both loved. I asked him to come see the Victorian I was redoing. He came; that was it: my designer for life.”

Among the offerings the couple showed Randolph was a house with classical styling in a quiet park-like neighborhood just outside Georgetown. Built in 1994, it had a stucco exterior with a plain yet well-proportioned presentation that reminded the clients of a European home. Randolph recognized elements of the Palladian style from studying classical architecture in Italy. He also saw how some deft changes could streamline the look. “I suggested they buy the house and tinker with its interior elements,” recalls Randolph. “The project’s latent classicism was right up my alley: big rooms and good proportions; an enfilade from a wide front hall to the rear of the house; and lots of light from big windows.” Adds landscape architect Guy Williams, “The garden design and plantings directly reflect the classic architecture of the home. We defined the front entry courtyard with cobblestone and brought in the large linden trees to create an aerial hedge along the street.

Sunlight through new French doors on the west side of the house floods the first-floor family room, where a B&B Italia sofa is upholstered in Perennials fabric from Hines & Company. The vibrant pillow textiles by China Seas and a coffee table from Janus et Cie add texture to the space.


Between the kitchen and family room is a breakfast area architect George Stavropoulos renovated by eliminating columns that had originally set it apart. A Niermann Weeks pedestal table is paired with chairs by Bobby McAlpine for Lee Industries, from American Eye, wrapped in Perennials’ Gee Whiz fabric.

Anticipating Randolph’s changes was architect George Stavropoulos, who had also worked on the wife’s previous home. He renovated the kitchen and bathrooms and eliminated architectural elements obscuring the fundamental classicism of the internal layout. “I reinforced the ceiling across the back of the house in order to remove a columned half-wall enclosure between the kitchen and family room,” he says. The new completely open breakfast area retains its place as the focal point in a bay of French doors, but it is now minimally defined by Randolph’s graceful pairing of a garden-like pedestal table and slipcovered chairs. Taking the home’s due east-west exposure into account, Stavropoulos crafted full-height replacement French doors with narrow sashes for the west side. Interior door heights were also raised 18 inches to maximize LUXE INTERIORS

the light’s reach. Randolph then went about reassigning furniture from the client’s former home. He refurbished some of his custom seating with new indoor-outdoor upholstery for durability and extended the pale hues throughout. Select pieces of mahogany furniture present a counterpoint to the muted palette. Although not a lover of “brown wood,” says Randolph about traditional mahogany pieces, he favors “the contrasting punctuations of color and sculptural form” they offer in his design. Today, the clients couldn’t be happier in their new abode. And it was an easy task, thanks to being on the same page as Randolph with their like-minded approach to design. “I never had to give them more than two fabric choices,” says Randolph. “We were just that in sync.” L

The master bedroom’s hue was chosen for its serenity. The dresser and chair, both from Tone on Tone, are 19th-century Swedish antiques, and the club chair is an FBR Custom piece. David Iatesta’s bench from Holly Hunt features Groves Bros. fabric and a lively Wolf Kahn oil painting hangs over the dresser.

t’s a tall order by any measure: Build a Texas-size house in a Washington, D.C., suburb that doesn’t look or feel big, and give it the old-world styling of a French château that’s flooded with light. Such was the task for the team commissioned by a

Houston couple who moved to the D.C. area and chose to build their permanent home in nearby McLean. “They had lived all over the world, due to the husband’s position as president of an international corporation, and desired a house that would resemble a country estate with European influences,” says Sandra Lucas, a Houston interior designer who had fashioned three other homes for the couple. “Everything came together in this house,” says Lucas, owing in large part to the talents assembled to create it. With the designer on board, the owners turned to Stephen Yeonas Jr., who helmed the build and whose firm also sold them their land. Yeonas—who worked on the project alongside partners Richard Ellis and Mitch Racoosin—then called upon

architect Bulent A. Baydar and introduced the owners to landscape designer Charles L. Owen, who is known for his French-influenced style. “It was this great collaboration,” the wife says of their ability to translate her ideas. “We had a good program for the spaces and services we wanted in the house and had strong ideas about the style we desired, particularly in the areas where we spend a lot of time.” Baydar, who worked with architect Gregory L. Palmer on the home, began the process by showing the owners several pictures of châteaus in France’s Dordogne River Valley region—the residences are notable for their pale stone walls and dark slate roofs. “The couple just went for it,” Baydar says, approving an exterior design that reads as a casual French country house, but with an interior that’s “a little more formalized.” To that end, Lucas specified details such as hand-scraped parquet floors, coffered ceilings, hand-painted finishes and elegant custom light fixtures that hang from groin-vaulted galleries. In addition, the designer lightened the feel everywhere by eliminating window casings and door moldings. Baydar then designed intimate spaces connected by vestibules, anterooms and galleries. “The house slowly reveals itself as you’re walking through— you want every aspect of the home to have its own feel, its own shape, so it’s not all thrown at you at once.” That’s why details were so important in each space—inside and out. Some of the most notable ones came from a Paris trip that included Lucas, Owen, Racoosin and the wife.

During this trip, Owen, who grew up in France and speaks fluent French, selected an octagonal Provençale fountain for the rear of the house to anchor a classic parterre garden of boxwoods and ground cover in alternating colors. He also chose antique gates that visitors step through to go out back. “The garden is set up to lure one into the space, and we took special care to create privacy but still invite a sense of intrigue as one comes through the gates,” explains Owen. “We wanted the outside of the home to relate to the inside and have a seamless integration that doesn’t just abruptly end when outdoors.” Racoosin, meanwhile, scoured flea markets with Lucas and her client, looking for antique doors and fireplaces with their set of plans in hand. He helped the women figure out where the materials could go and made sure their measurements were conveyed back to the construction site. “Mitch has this architectural bent, so he really brought a lot to the party,” the wife says. 210 L U X E I N T E R I O R S

As they considered each piece, she adds, “we’d be on the phone, standing in Paris, talking to the superintendent on the job.” In all, they purchased four fireplace mantels, five sets of doors and several major pieces of furniture, which give age, distinction and a timeless quality to the new home. In the end, the homeowners were pleased with their new dwelling that is filled with rich history, and Yeonas applauds the work of everyone involved. “I’m blown away by the level of detail in the architecture and interior design,” he says. Adds Lucas, “I love the finished product of this home. I see the client’s personality throughout the spaces and am reminded of the great experience of working with this talented team.” L LUXE INTERIORS

BOWERS DESIGN BUILD

WHAT ARE THE KEY INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK TODAY? It starts and ends with the client. We design and build for our unique, individual clients and their unique, individual needs. WHAT LED YOU TO YOUR CURRENT PROFESSION? Bruce is a third-generation builder. But what makes him unique is that he understands you can’t be a great designer without great craftsmen. That is why he feels strongly about the design/build model where there is a single source of accountability. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT? We are currently working on two large whole-house renovations and several smaller, but equally as important, renovations. We love a variety of projects.

For more than 20 years, Bowers Design Build has operated upon the premise that all home building and remodeling projects were created equal. From a new home to a master bathroom renovation, every job is held to the same exacting standards of Bruce and Wilma Bowers. “Every client is unique, and we start with a clean slate for each,” says Wilma, co-owner and vice president of business operations. Invariable, however, is their rigorous approach to establishing client objectives—long before construction takes place. “One of the first things we give our clients is a proprietary document we call the Bowers’ Design Survey,” explains Wilma. “It gives the client the opportunity to answer the question: What are our true priorities for this project?” The survey also addresses functionality and aesthetics with both qualitative and quantitative questions like: “How do you use the space in your existing home?” And, “On a scale from 1 to 10, how much natural sunlight in your home is important?” A final question, retrospective in nature, addresses the big picture in a creative manner: “After the project is completed, and you have guests over, what are five adjectives you would like them to use when describing this new space?” Time and time again, this analytical method has proven to be an invaluable resource to both Bowers and the client. “Once we understand the client objectives, we take a holistic approach to reaching them,” says Bruce. “For instance, a client may say that they want to renovate their kitchen and eating space. However, through our Design Survey, we uncover that they also need more space for the family’s sporting equipment and a study in the adjacent space. We do our absolute best to enhance the livability of a home in its entirety.”

Formerly a 1961 Williamsburg Cape, this total house transformation added all the comforts of a modern home, including a family foyer, master suite and chef-quality kitchen, complete with walk-in-pantry and comfortable outdoor space.

Adding 10 extra feet on the rear of this house made all the difference in the function and beauty of the home. A renovated gourmet kitchen is accentuated by the fantastic, new eating area flooded by natural light.

“We would definitely call Bowers for our next design/build project. We honestly enjoyed every step of the process and ended up with a home that we absolutely love.”

–JEFF AND ANN, HOMEOWNERS

The addition of this sunroom to a traditional-styled home has given the homeowners views of the sunrise and sunset. This “getaway” space, with floor-to-ceiling windows, has become the favorite room in the house.

The wooded setting around this home is beautiful. The new, modern kitchen and floor-to-ceiling glass exterior walls accentuate the ability to appreciate the beauty of the encompassing nature.
